I quickly reached "Angel". Not having to go through a long phone tree and not having to wait very long was the first pleasent surprise. Angel told me to use a paper clip and press the hidden "reset" button for two minutes. After that, the router lit up. At this point I assumed the call would end...problem solved. But, no, Angel stayed on the line, walking me through provisioning the router, and then made sure that my desktop could reach the internet, and then kept on going to make certain my laptop also was set.
So customer service gets a HUGE A+ from me.
And how does the router work? Invisibly, just like it's supposed to. No hic-ups, no glitches, full speed ahead. All our computers (three: my wife has a desktop which I got running on my own) are now in the 21st Century, thanks to NetGear and Angel.
I only set it up yesterday, but so far so good. Its not being used as a repeater or range booster, so I can't comment on the use of that. But for what my parents use it for, it perfectly suits their needs.
Most Internet services, even FIOS and Cable, have speeds no higher than 20-30 Mbps, so if you really just want wireless access to the Internet, this device is fine. If you want to move files to/from a home server or desktop, or stream video to a laptop or other device, you should spring for the extra money to buy a wireless router with gigabit ports.
These routers are great for people who are not experts at networking. The instructions are clear, short, and easy to follow.
UPDATE: There have been no connection problems and router is doing a great job. All my devices (iPhone, iMac, HP Laptop, Macbook) all connect with no problems. This is a great budget router that will get the job done for the average household. It's perfect for my needs. Changed rating from 4 to 5 stars.
UPDATE 2 YEARS LATER: Have had this router for 2 years now and worked great.. until now. I am constantly losing connection, sometimes over 5 times a day. Then I have to restart the router (turn off, let it sit for a minute, then turn back on and wait for the connection to establish). Granted the process only takes maybe 3-4 mins, but it can be quite a hassle when trying to stream via Apple TV or get some work done and this process needs to be repeated a number of times. I've adjusted the rating to a 3 out of 5 because when it is working, it's great.
Did some research and I replaced this router with an Apple AirPort Express, hopefully this one won't stink out on me after 2 years also..
